Tom Hanks has somehow been dragged into rap beef with Tekashi 6ix9ine

In The Know

Tekashi 6ix9ine has enough on his

plate with all the trouble he’s been

in with the law and his former gang.

but that didn’t stop him from

bringing America’s sweetheart,

Tom Hanks, into his latest feud.

In 2018, the rapper was facing

life in prison for racketeering

and firearms charges.

After he cooperated with authorities

and testified against former friends, his

sentence was reduced to just two years.

Due to the global crisis, Tekashi 6ix9ine was released

early in April 2020 under the condition that he serve

the final four months of his sentence under house arrest.

Rather than doing so quietly, he made his

chaotic return to music on May 9 with a

clip of a video for his new song “GOOBA".

It generated some reactions, to say the least.

One person who couldn’t resist weighing

in was Chet Hanks, the outspoken rapper

son of Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson.

“Don’t be fooled by social media. That dude is SCARED S***LESS

but has no choice but to laugh and make light of it cuz he

knows he’s a marked man for the rest of his life either way".

Chet Hanks also called

the colorful rapper a “snitch".

Tekashi 6ix9ine responded

by directing his comment

to Hanks' famous father.

“Wishing his dad a speedy recovery,” he commented

on Instagram after hip-hop media personality DJ

Akademiks posted screenshots of Chet Hanks’ rant.

Tom Hanks has yet to respond.

but we hope he does so by

literally continuing to recover
